News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Holiday travelers: Feds will ask for citizenship proof at crossings

The Associated Press

Published: 05.19.2008

Travelers heading to Puerto Peñasco, Son., for Memorial Day weekend should be prepared with the documentation they'll need to come back.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say being prepared before arriving at the Lukeville border crossing will help ease the waits caused by holiday traffic.

The Lukeville crossing is a gateway to Puerto Peñasco, a popular weekend destination for Arizonans that is commonly referred to as Rocky Point.

A law requiring travelers ages 19 or older to show both a government-issued photo ID and proof of citizenship when coming back into the country went into effect Jan. 31.

Those 18 or younger will also need proof of citizenship.
